Electro-pop outfit and visual stimulators Teen Men released a new music video for the track “The Sea, The Sea” and, not surprisingly, it’s wonderfully bizarre and trippy as hell.

The video – directed by Sylvio Bernardi - dances between color and black and white, animate and inanimate, with a balding figurine riding the waves of the drudgery of life before escaping to his dreams, eventually being pulled away by a live person in a guerrilla costume (credited as Herbert Herpels). If this makes absolutely no sense, that’s probably the point. Visual art has a funny way of making sense of things that words simply cannot. This is one of those instances.
